OBE and Astral Projection comes in many forms and thus it is difficult to just give it one name for all various states.
1. Inner Projection. This means going inside yourself to explore your mind in its fullest. In various Hermetic and Alchemical texts you'll see
references to this as well in correlation of accessing the Akashic Records. This theory can also, partially, be found in Budhism where it states that
we're working our way to the point of becoming one with the Universal Conciounse where all is stored and available to you. Simply put, look within
for your strenght.
Dreams mainly fall into this catagory as well seeing how you explore your own subconcious and archetypical imageries. Still it also falls into the
next catagory of Outer Projection.
2. Outer Projection. With this you actually transcend your physical form and be able do various things. You can indeed stay around your house, in this
reality, in "real time"...cept nobody will notice you're there unless they have that ability. You can then actually go to wherever you want and see
things as they are happening right now. You can also go real time to the stratosphere and beyond and see life forms which are not from Earth.
Another aspect is with dreams where you will go to your personal Astral Environment. Some say this is a place in your mind and others see it as an
external location. To me it depends which task I plan on doing, because one is self exploration of the mind while the other has no psychological
effects at all and isn't ment to be that way either. In this environment you'll be in a different "dimension" as people like to call it. With
Lucid Dreaming and various Self-hypnoses and trance techniques you can conciously create that environment as you wish. You personal location, which I
personal decorated to be a personal quiet spot to retreat to when need be. Once more, you could see this as a part of Inner Projection as well deu to
the psychological load it caries.
The most famous aspect of AP'ing is to meet up with "enlightend" beings such as "transcended Masters", "Angels", "Demons" and more. But this
is a trap for those not in the clear of the ego. They will most likely see Inner Guidance, Higher Selves, Inner Demons as true Demons, Angels and
such. While in fact it is just Inner Projection which shows parts of their inner psyche which they haven't come on terms with or gave intuitive good
So basically we can Project Real Time, Instantly, whenever...depending on which type of Projecting you're talking. Have been doing so in one form or
another for over a decade now, but in a concious manner only for the past 5 years or so.
